Roll on

Body roll? What body roll? Okay, so our Civic's suspension probably needs some love.

The car hasn’t really changed much, but we ran it at a Central Florida SCCA “fun day” autocross this past weekend. The course was basically an up-and-back affair, as it was located on an abandoned air strip in DeLand, Fla.

The higher-speed sweepers meant our damper speeds were on the low side, so the car wasn’t such a mess this time. Power from our stock engine also felt good.

We ran our tire pressures at 37 psi front/40 psi rear. The car was a little tail-happy, but nothing that couldn’t be controlled. In fact, the car was easier to catch than we expected. The overall impression was similar to an XL-sized Civic.

Out of the 92 drivers who posted times, our Civic finished 27th. Now we’re feeling good about the car. Time to order some go-fast goodies.
